Following the arrivals, there will always be departures. Several players have left the team today, and will join up to their new teams, some of them being Aaron Lennon and Emmanuel Adebayor.
Lineker has managed to clear out the deadwood, funding the several arrivals in the squad. Aaron Lennon has departed for Anfield, as Liverpool enquired about his services. Lineker demanded 19.000.000, and Liverpool decided to open their checkbooks and bring the English winger to Anfield.
Following a good season, Defoe has departed to Man City for 7.000.000, as the striker positions are now stacked, having Lopez and Lacina Traore upfront, choices far more obvious than Jermaine Defoe. The fans aren't exactly pleased with this, as he had a good season, hitting the net 16 times.
Michael Dawson departed to West Bromwich Albion, for a fee of 7.500.000. He was deemed surplus, as M'Biwa and Chiriches joined the squad. Lineker decided to sell him now, to make sure he'll get a decent fee for the player.
Brad Friedel departed to Southampton for 325.000, and has given his spot in the team to Ospina.
Emmanuel Adebayor and Clint Dempsey departed for 5m and 5.75m to Wolfsburg and Inter respectively, with Lineker delighted he got rid of their wages and got decent fees for both of them.
Adam Smith also left to Brighton, 2.5m.
Assou-Ekotto left to AC Milan for 10.500.000, leaving Vertonghen and Danny Rose to compete for the left defender position. Last but not least, Iago Falque left to Osasuna for a fee of 3.750.000.
